You watched the Shaul incident back, so I'd suggest you watch this one back too.

Clear contact with the forearm to the back of the head = direct contact with the head and should have been a card. Regardless of Connor's behaviour after.


Agree to a point Wheeldon should have been penalised at least. Wheeldon played for both our clubs and is not a dirty player it was an accident very obviously.

Connor's behaviour afterwards was quite disgraceful. He very obviously was not hurt and very obviously feigned injury refused to play on and fanned the flames of an already powder keg situation lighting the blue touch paper.

If you and Lee Radford approve of this shame on you.
I couldn't hear the robin sing if not for you.

Connor doesn't feign injury. He draws the attention of the blind officials to another player making direct contact with the head which with the current interpretation of the rules is a red card. Unfortunately the game is a complete shamble at the minute and the 'crime and punishment' process is nothing more than a lottery. Jake Connor is doing nothing more than playing the game the RFL are creating. I have no issue with it at all from the players perspective. it is the responsibility of the RFL to manage the game, it's laws and how it is officiated. They are failing and the game is suffering.
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the (Dark) Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

Agree he isn't a dirty player generally, but he was wound up and "putting himself about".

Diagnosis via the TV. Great stuff.

He may or may not have been hurt, but accusing a player of feigning injury is a good one. If the "flames" can be "fanned" like that perhaps the players should be asking themselves about their own discipline. Chris Hill is another example. Connor wound him up a treat.

Most fans would love Connor on their team, winding up the oppo.

Connor’s a great talent and I think the proportion of his value that comes from being a WUM is pretty small. I think he’s too good for the role people seem keen assign him, as some sort of next generation Ryan Bailey. Though not as precocious, he reminds me a bit of Gary Schofield, in terms of playing style.

I'll take a WUM like Bailey if Connor helps us win grand finals :lol:

Absolutely! :)

However, it’s not a compulsory price and it can be a double-edged sword.

From the player’s perspective, if you’re capable, I imagine being bracketed with the likes of Sinfield, McGuire or Watkins would be more satisfying.
